to al-qaeda has been found in this attack, at least not yet. >> well, we have learned they haven't been able to extinguish whether it's an international terrorist or domestic terrorist. >> i know that the pressure cooker was in the magazine that was the al-qaeda magazine. it does have islamist links but could be used by another group like a white supremacist group. cenk: i believe we're looking at a live picture there and people in white suits obviously that means they're concerned about a bomb in the area. so, you know, this is on going the concern is on going. now, i love how steve king connected the pressure cooker to al-qaeda somehow. >> michael connected it to u.s. >> right. >> it did feel u.s., right. >> it probably was in this al-qaeda magazine, there's no reason to doubt that it's not. >> i can't believe that peter king actually at the end acknowledged that it also could be a white supreme sift group. cenk: first of all, let's look at what's logical. if the ricin attack is connected to the bombings and it does seem like wow that is incredible timing if it's not connected who's g
puzzling. quote, the two men had direction and guidance from al-qaeda elements located in iran. now that makes no assistance because al-qaeda and sunni eight each other. that's like there was guidance go the united states. at least they made sure that it wasn't carried out no matter where they're from. of course, we're going to talk about boston and the rights associated withdhozvt dhozahar tsarnaev. but in order for me to do that i need to bring in my panel. we have joe williams from political reporter commentator and of course, national coverage editor--whatever reporter with politico. i'm reading all of these. and beth fouhy for yahoo news, and kevin cirilli. you can tell i'm in a fun mood. we want to give you an update. everyone knows that the younger brother was caught on friday after a shootout. i was watching all of joe's tweets on it. that's how i found out about it, literally. but let's watch that on abc. >> the bomb suspects now facing the death penalty. among those who lost their lives, 29-year-old crystal campbell the first of the victims to be laid to rest. the search f
they're safe as well. we know that al-qaeda has camps with the drug cartel on the other side of the mexican border. we know people have been trained to act like they're hispanic when they're radical islamists. we know this is happening and it's insane not to protect yourself and make sure people come in, as most people do, they want the freedoms we have. >> cenk: so now apparently al-qaeda is acting like hispanic. i'm not sure i know what that means, guys, but working hard, loving your family. >> what is he talking about? he's talking about so many things and trying to connect things that don't connect. if you're talking about acting line hispanic, i guess you could say, middle eastern people and hispanic people sometimes have similar features or complexions but i'm not sure what he's suggesting that we do. >> cenk: i think he's slightly off balanced, mentally. >> absolutely. >> cenk: he is actually a sitting u.s. congress person. he thinks there are big al-qaeda camps on the other side of the border like they're getting ready to cross the border, and training how to act hisp
or they were the agent of a foreign power. in the case of al-qaeda and the taliban if you could show that an individual was a member of al-qaeda or taliban then there may be some legal grounds to detain them and try them as an enemy combatant rather than in federal court. but this is masked in legal clothing. it's not actually a legal argument, and we shouldn't confuse these two things. the argument they're making is we should presume from the beginning that any incident involving islamic militancy is some how tied into al-qaeda. as i said, i've done research on this region and this particular conflict for 15 years. while the militants in chechnya have adopted al-qaeda ideology the connection is very slim and they have very different objectives that are very local very parochial and have a lot of to do with russia and very little to do with the united states. >> john: i agree and you're characterizing that as a political approach is profoundly diplomatic. scholar and attorney, christopher swift, thank you for coming tonight. >> thank you. >> john: thank you. one good thing may come o
of the implement itself, a pressure cooker is more commonly used in those countries than in places like iraq. al-qaeda refers to it in their recruiting website to inspire others. it's simple. a pressure cooker, the purpose of a device like a pressure cooker, the reason why you would need a device like this because a slow-burning--something that does not detonate, it doesn't--it literally explodes. it only explodes when it's in a contained vessel, and the gas has overwhelmed the vessel and then turns that vessel into shrapnel. the pressure cooker is a poor man's way of putting the explosive in, locking the top on and now you have a vessel for the explosive. >> john: i'm sure you're confused as the rest of us was about the amount of confusion today. is it possible that law enforcement deliberately put out false information about an arrest to flush out suspects? >> it certainly could be done. one of the big units involved in a case like this, and every major case is the behavioral analysis down in quantico. my brother is from that unit, and they're directly involved in directing the investigators of how
an al-qaeda terror plot in toronto. at this time there is no evidence that it was connected to boston. this morning funerals were held for two of the victims. >> 29-year-old krystle campbell, a restaurant manager who was at the marathon, cheering on her boyfriend. friends describe her as have kind heart and wry sense of humor, and there was a funeral for lingzi lu, a chinese citizen who had just written her final exams link. an eight year old boy martin richard was killed as was a police officer. today a thousand mourners turned out to pay their respect. the west borough baptist church has threatened to picket the funerals because gay marriage is legal in massachusetts. but 200 teamsters came out to protect the mourners and the protesters were nowhere to be seen. there was a moment of silence for the victims, the city of boston, white house, house, senate and new york stock exchange all stopped pay their respect. dzhokhar tsarnaev is at boston's hospital. he is on vaent late for and handcuffed to his hospital bed so he won't be able to pull his breathing tube out
from an on line magazine an al-qaeda linked publication, but how many people know how to put together an eye kia piece of furniture from the directions, let alone make a functioning explosive device. i wouldn't be surprised to find he had some training with the handling of explosives overseas. cenk: we don't know yet. it's speculation. i'm against all the warrantless wiretapping, et cetera, but there is one candidate for tracking it's people who read "inspire" magazine, radical muslims to attack, i'd track that one but that's just me. all right so now i want to go to clip a37 here. i want to play this clip from fox news. he's going to blame most muslims for it. i want your reaction. let's watch it together. >> what do hacks do when they're wrong about terror? they cling to relativism. muslim extremism is no different than other extremism but to make it stick you've got to suck at math. muslim versus christian extremism is comparing hurricane katrina to a squirt begun which is why they embrace root causes to attach the response to evil. a lot of people don't fit in and still don't blow
this narrative that it is islamic, jihadist, al-qaeda-type organization. without having any facts. >> stephanie: you know what? it might be. that's the problem. we don't know yet. >> caller: right. for every one time they mention a domestic terrorist organization, they mentioned al-qaeda ten times. and you know, i think that's part of what rush limbaugh does. he gets out in front and he tries to shape the behavior of these major news networks by his ranting and raving and i think that's something we need to be careful of and really as a society, we need to understand. >> stephanie: yeah, that's what i was saying yesterday. he makes this like -- he takes one guy that wrote one thing and says oh, the mainstream media is dying to think this or this. no, "washington post" is one of the only places that rushed to a judgment without having the information. and as it turns out, they were wrong. i'm sorry, "new york post." >> very different. >> very, very different. >> sorry! >> stephanie: all right. one of the doctors at massachusetts general. >> variety of sharp objects we found in their bodies, prob
security committee who right away wants to stir up the al-qaeda theory. here he is. >> it could end up being someone else but right now it has all of the indicators in every aspect of being an al-qaeda-affiliated attack. >> bill: what's that based on? based on nothing. you know what it is based on? peter king having to get on television. i just think it is time to calm down a little bit. looks it could be but remember oklahoma city was a domestic affect terrorism. the atlanta olympic bombing centennial park was a domestic act of terrorism. this could easily have been one of those. we don't know. is the answer right now. front page of "the washington post," i don't know whether you can see this. but look again at the heavy presence of police officers right there on the scene as this one marathon runner falls to the ground. he was totally uninjured. on the phones, don is calling from nashua, new hampshire. hey, don, good morning. >> caller: good morning, bill. i said it is a sad day in boston history. >> bill: absolutely. in american history. >> are you close by, don? were you close by?

it. i'm shocked. >> john: one thing i will say about that, al-qaeda never -- >> check my bag all the time. >> they know you're going to sue and not pay taxes. >> john: that already happened in spain and al-qaeda tends to not do the same thing twice. after the break he said, hopefully, something else is the matter with kansas. you don't want to miss it. i'm going to get in trouble for this next bit. stick around.

al-qaeda has camps on the other side of the mexican border. and they are being trained to come in and act like mexicans when they are radical islamists. >> remember this is the same guy% who said that -- warned against terror babies where pregnant morts were being put into the united states have baby's send them out to the middle east and then have them come back and bomb our cities. the appeal of loui gohmert is to try to link all of this stuff together but it is really the britters and ziophobes in the party. and he certainly doesn't have a lot of influence. >> michael: i also want to about another strange person mark sanford. the republicans are saying we're not going to spend another dime on this race. he is on his own. his colleague saying i am not going to make a comment. >> he is amazing, you try to sneak back into your house where your wife doesn't want you to be. and the whole story is amazing. at every turn he tries to make a comeback and then blows off his own foot in the process. this is an amazing opening for the democrats and stephen colbert's s
. they learned how to make the bombs from an online magazine published by al-qaeda. they did it because they had recently became deeply religious and opposed u.s. involvement with iraq and afghanistan: the 24-year-old told authorities that she saw her husband on thursday just hours before he died in a gun battle with police but she said she had no idea that he had committed the bombings or was planning more attacks. today her lawyer said this brief statement. >> as a mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife, she deeply mourns the pain and loss to innocent victims students, law enforcement officers families, and our community. >> michael: the suspect mother went even further telling nbc news there was simply no way that her children committed the horrible crime. she spoke to reporters. >> what has happened is a terrible thing, but i know that my kids have nothing to do with this. i know it. i am mother. i have--you know, i know my kids. i know my kids. really my kids would never get involved in anything like that. >> michael: nbc reports she was very close to tamerlan and she was actually the one wh
york post" of radio, but the headline is boston bombing suspect posted video on al-qaeda prophecy on youtube. >> yeah, the older brother, the one that was killed last night, 26 years old, his name was tamerlin tsarnaev. they were both russian-born chef kneeians. the older one was apparently a competitive boxer for a club named team lowell. and he was a member of a team that won the golden globe championship. he had been boxing apparently for almost eight years, and he is quoted as saying that -- in a newspaper article about this mix mixed marshall arts center where he trained, he says that he does [ inaudible ] god said no alcohol. the article that describes him as a devout muslim and he says there are no values anymore and he worries that people can't control themselves. he doesn't usually take his short off because he doesn't want girls to get bad ideas and he is very religious. the loves the movie boreat even though he thinks some of the jokes are too much. he said he would rather fight for the united states than russian in the olympics. so clearly this guy
conservatives were completely certain it was the return of al-qaeda. personally, i hope the saudis weren't behind this because history shows if that were the case, we would have to invade iraq again. the world has been filled with people who jump to conclusion and maybe unsun stantiated claims. now they do in 140 characters or less. if you have a post-tragedy vacuum that needs to be filled, twitter has all of the irresponsible trolls for all of your filler needs. friends, we now live in the golden age of online niche scapegoat culture which i'm qualified to rant about because i'm on a niche cable show and thanks to time-warner is the nichiest of niches because when something terrible like this happens, there is always a certain percentage of people who sit at their computer and say hey, you know what? this is really all about me. disasters make brave people braver and dumb people dumber. while brave people rush to serve others dumb people rush their own interest. they place blame. otherwise, smart liberals declared unfairly and unliberally that the crime was obviously perpetuated by some
of responsibility the more likely it is domestic rather than some al-qaeda or jihadist group. i think if that were the case we would have heard from them. >> that's usually the case. >> that we showed you we can still attack you on your soil. >> yeah. >> but who knows? who knows? but it does raise the question, you know, and all we can do is look at what's going on and just kind of scratch our heads and wonder. a couple of questions i think it raises for me that i would like to get your take on this morning, 866-55-press, your reaction to this horrific event on monday just destroying what was a marvelous, almost national celebration of the marathon on patriot's day. it's not nufsh to know somebody who is running it or and itunusual to know somebody who is running it or and it becomes a festive weekend around patriot's day. and it will symbolizes boston brings together the people of boston. so your thoughts on that, number 1. 866-55-press. secondly, what does this mean? does it make you think twice about going where there are concentrations of people am? tak
for that conservative to call in and reach out. congressman king is another one. he is trying to state's al-qaeda. >> stephanie: he is not alex jones, or some lunatic fringe. he's a united states congressman. >> caller: exactly. that's my point. he is supposed to be responsible. he has been anti-muslim since day one. he's not -- he's not representative of a lot of other people in new york and it's really up setting to have somebody like that -- >> stephanie: jill, no matter what side of the aisle you are on, that's human, because of 9/11, when you hear saudi, you go of course because of patriot's day you look at the connection to tim mcveigh and go, oh, of course. but we don't know. >> i have gut feelings but i'm not expressing them yet. and i want to hear facts not just speculation. and that's what those people on fox news and the "new york post," and others they do that too much. >> for the right-wing there is no terrorism except for islamic terrorism. >> stephanie: yeah. is there going to be as much screaming about the word terror if it turns out to be right-wing domest
-up. surrounded the student that saudi arabia and al-qaeda. >> you know what's very interesting in this, the saudi national you know, the poor young guys splashed on the front payment in the "new york post," a lot of right wing chatter about a missing brown university student, might have been involved in this. and authorities said absolutely not. look, take a step back. there was an absolute burning desire to find a mideastern guy to be the suspect. and the "new york post" and other conservative outlets like glenn beck, they proved that they'll just make it up. it was such a burning desire to have the story fit the their at this that they wanted. that they were willing and they have the media tools to just start make stuff up and creating their own reality and creating their own parallel universe. where hey, it is a saudi. guess what. we decided it is a saudi. so that's the story we're going to go with because that's the story we want. if you just take a couple of seconds, imagine, you know, thank god glenn beck wasn't around on 9-11. thank god the fox news of today wasn't around on 9-11. thank go
